Ok, ok, I'm not *really* becoming a musician

Ok, I’m not leaving atheism in order to become a Christian rock singer.  Yesterday was April Fools Day.  :P

I had spent the previous three days doing set up for Greta’s April 1 post on twitter.  I was talking about how much I miss singing, about how hard it is to make money as a singer, about how I’d love to be an atheist musician but that I just thought the market was saturated, etc.

The odd thing was that I got oodles of support.  People were telling me they’d buy a CD if I put one out.  I almost hated that it was all for a joke!

You guys are all sweet.  Thank you so much.  :)  I smiled.

PERSONAL: Happy birthday, Hitch.
PERSONAL: Sorry to disappoint you, Julian.
Update and pics from #AACon15. MST3K cast members were at my talk.
PERSONAL: The corrupting power of fame and my love for my commenters.

    Hey, you should STILL put out a CD.

    Personally I thought the original idea was brilliant as long as you can keep a straight face long enough to take all their money. You could fund the next reason rally using christian rock

  • John Horstman

    Next year’s Rock Beyond Belief, featuring atheist Christian-rock singer JT Eberhard. :-P

    You got me!

    But it’s a crap joke because why wouldn’t a trained opera singer put out a CD?

    So you never had a dream of becoming the next Justin Beiber?

    Maybe you could be a rapper like Greydon Square and sing about how you would like to fuck Christians up.
